Milk Envy

leave a comment »

President Jimmy Carter wishes he had something…anything.. to milk.  But he doesn’t, and he never really did (except maybe for the US tax payer).  That’s why it’s a bit humorous to hear him flap on about McCain “milking” his time as a POW.

Four Years ago, John Kerry stood at the platform of the DNC and announced that he was “reporting for duty!”  But it just didn’t ring as true for Winter Soldier Kerry as it does now for John McCain.  You see, John McCain never dragged his country through the mud as did John Kerry.  They both served admirably from most accounts, but at the end, that’s where they chose very separate paths. 

So, Mr Carter, you can carp all you like about John McCain milking his service, but I think he’s at least earned the right.  You had your chance to do a different kind of milking once upon a time, and our collective pocketbooks are still smarting for it today.  Let’s let a real hero taste some well-deserved glory.
